Solar power now accounts for 2% of electricity in the United States and has accounted for at least one-third of all new electric capacity brought online in the last three years, according to the Solar Industries Energy Association. It’s an industry that’s growing across the country and here in Central Ohio.

Scott Snider is one local home owner that is now powering his home with sunshine. Snider says he’s had his eye on solar power for a while, but took the leap this summer because of improving technology and falling prices over the last several years. He uses an app on his phone to monitor his solar panels to see how much they are producing.
